Location: Parma, Ohio, United States

I am a Certified Lay Ecclesial Minister in the Diocese of Cleveland and serve as a Pastoral Associate at St. Mary Parish in Hudson, Ohio (Diocese of Cleveland). St. Mary's is a large and vibrant parish between Cleveland and Akron. I am part of the Pastoral Staff and directly responsible for Adult Faith Formation, Bible Study and RCIA, but also oversee many of the catechetical ministries for children. I also serve the Diocese of Cleveland's Office of Catholic Education as an Apprentice Program Facilitator, where I currently lead groups of elementary school teachers in a three year study of the US Catholic Catechism for Adults as part of their religion certification process. I am married to Stacie, who is a Catholic school teacher and I enjoy the appreciation of culture: reading, history, art, museums, etc. My favorite areas of Catholicism to study are Church History & Scripture.
